Larkware CopyBoy and the Beta

Just a quick warning to keep someone from trashing a site.

Larkware CopyBoy does not work with the Beta.  Conversion of HTML pages to articles will fail with errors then CityDesk will be unable to open the "converted" articles.

Yup, changes to the CD file format have that effect.

CB 2.0 beta will be along presently...not sure when, as it's not my "day job".

Mike -- you should check the version number in the database and refuse to proceed if you don't recognize it...

To Mike's credit, before performing any changes on the database CopyBoy throws up a dialog stating that it is Alpha software and you should back up your database before its use.

Joel - Yep, 2.0 already has the version check in it. I didn't do any defensive programming in 1.0, alas.
